Johnson prepares for leadership bid

Lobbydog has spoken to a Labour back-bencher who said Alan Johnson is definitely, seriously considering standing for the Labour leadership.

He'll finalise his decision this weekend at home and we may find out one way or another on Monday.

The signal that the leadership challenge is on will be a rejection of a promotion in the reshuffle.

None of the whispers going round say a leadership move is dependent on whether Labour performs better than expected in the elections.

Even within Labour circles the vote is considered a forgone conclusion.

I have linked to your post in my blog. I thought I should point out how the Labour party rules allow Brown to be removed. To evolves from an exchange I had with John Rentoul back in March.
